It was very busy when we went,wasn't able to take advantage of the shuttle. A taxi cab back up the hill was about 10 bucks. Pool area could use... More

This "hotel" would be great if the staff had better attitudes. This guy Andrew is rude and unfriendly. When he talks he is hard to understand. He just seems to not enjoy his job at all. House keeping is no better. Rooms are not adequately cleaned; I found that my sheet was turned inside out so that it wouldn't be... More

I would suggest to expand the spa so that it would fit more than 4 people. The location of the hotel is great. They do have a shuttle van and... More

This hotel has been updated since I was last here many years ago. The decor inside our room was lovely and everything was very clean. The staff is very helpful and it was great having a shuttle to go to and from the hotel. The one small drawback is the steep hill. If you miss the shuttle...get a cab or... More

The hotel shuttle is a 6 passenger mini van. It works unless there are more than 6 waiting passengers and then you can wait for a long time. The shuttle stops at the boat dock, downtown and the hotel. We got on the shuttle at the boat dock but felt sorry for the folks downtown as they had to wait.... More
